The Constitutional Court will on August 23 deliver its ruling in the case in which MDC-Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa is challenging Emmerson Mnangagwa's victory in the July 30 elections. The court has taken Chamisa's lawyer Advocate Thabani Mpofu to task for "trying to build a case on alleged secondary evidence" while ignoring primary evidence and clear-cut court processes. In his submission, Mpofu sought to nullify the elections on the basis of mathematical and statistical evidence but "failed to bring original evidence to sustain his case", prompting Chief Justice Malaba to grill him over "lack of seriousness".
